I'm using Chromium. I use it partly because I'm fond of my privacy, but mostly so my friends will stop complaining that I'm using a botnet Internet browser. It constantly refuses to load pages but it's still the best browser I have.

I use SilverSurfer for Mac and SkyCloud for Windows. SilverSurfer was made by me and SkyCloud was made by me and my friend ABCDude.

But, the other times I use Chrome or Safari.

Google Chrome.

It always runs fastest for me. But I do use Firefox from time to time.
This is true for me as well. For me YouTube runs much faster on Firefox when even with 5 tabs open, Chrome videos don't play too well.

Firefox has stolen my heart. Every since I discovered it I've been using it. I'm very particular to clean looking things, and Firefox has filled that criteria for me.

Firefox. It's really been pissing me off with recent updates, but it's just... better. I even uninstalled it, and got chrome instead for awhile, but it's just so much better that I've still gone back to it, even though recent updates are really ruining things for me. (As far as usability anyway. I'm sure they've been improving performance and all that.)

It used to be Firefox, but thanks to its random crashes, I switched to Google Chrome. From my experience, it's faster and simply better.

Google Chrome, because it's the fastest browser and I can use it pretty easily.

I usually change which browser I use every few months to see the changes in them. Sometimes I hav e to go to another browser incase there are performance errors with them. That's happened with the last two browsers I used. (Opera, couldn't run Flash to save it's life and Chrome, which took up valuable hard drive space as I'm using a backup netbook until I can afford a laptop.)

Now I'm using Firefox, seems to be running good enough.

I originally used Firefox, but now I use Chrome. Chrome is about 100x better.

I use Chrome, it's fast, stable (for me anyways), and the extensions only enhance the experience.

It's clear to me that Google Chrome outruns any of the browsers, Internet Explorer, Firefox etc.

I would say Google Chrome. It's so easy and fast to open and at the same time, I think it uses the least amount of memory. Other browsers like Firefox are just slow and are hassles.

I mostly use Chrome, but I keep Firefox installed as a backup.

I honestly don't know why I use Chrome so much. I've never had trouble out of Firefox. Weird.

Depends on the computer.

On my main desktop, I adore Firefox. I used to detest it in favour of Opera back in the day, but Opera was... unstable. The main browsers at the time were IE and Firefox. I loved Opera's clean interface. Nobody loves the actual page pushed down to a small square because of Google Toolbar, which I needed for searches. Opera heftily provided me with a miniature Google Search bar. So I lived with Opera. Then, randomly, I decided to try out Firefox because there was this one session that Opera pissed me off with the incompatibilities. And then, I was greeted by a UI similar to Opera. A stable browser+the opera UI= Browser of my dreams. I quit using Opera altogether. Eventually, all the other browsers adopted the idea, but Firefox grew on me, I suppose.

On the netbook, I use Firefox Aurora and Chrome. Painfully said, Aurora (which I am using now) takes an awful lot of time to load with Intel Atom. I use Firefox as an alternative when I want to browse something rapidly, but for an upcoming intense session of browsing, I like Aurora. I am not using mainstream Firefox only because I like the name Aurora. It's a very good name, better than Firefox. Yeah, I know, not much of a reason, but meh. 2lazy2install regular Firefox.

Firefox FTW, it's fast mostly pop up free and is easy to use. It can be a bit of a pain in the butt with episodes of repeated response stopping but it doesn't happen often. I have Pale Moon which is similar as a back up.

When I'm on a PC, I use Firefox. It runs fast for me, even though it lags sometimes. When I'm on a Mac, I use Safari even if there are other Web browsers.

I use Chrome. In the end it's easy to use. Fast. It also does not memory leak much a like IE and Firefox which is very resource intensive.

I've begun to take a liking to Apple Safari when I'm on OS X. Seems like it's like butter. Just like how I liked it to be. How I liked browsers to be - to be smooth, even if not that fast.

I have given up on Opera on the desktop, though. It's a sad thing, no?
